Daughter of a farmer and market gardener so have always had a connection with the outdoors, whether it was keeping animals or producing fruit, vegetables and cut flowers. Along with my work at Hayes Garden World I also have a smallholding, mainly breeding rare breed pigs. I gained an HND and BSc in Conservation and Environmental Land Management, as a result I am an ardent environmentalist and have a keen interest in environmentally friendly gardening. In my time at Hayes I worked for several years in the Outdoor Plant and Houseplant areas

Equipment:

  • cast iron casserole dish

Place all the ingredients into the casserole dish.

Pre-heat the Traeger to 160 – 165C (320 – 329F) and place the stew in the centre. Leave the lid off the casserole dish in order for the stew to absorb some smoke. If the meat starts to brown too quickly or the liquid to evaporate replace the lid or cover with a sheet of tinfoil.

Cook for about 2 – 2.5 hours until the meat is tender.

This guide will take you through the steps to producing a delicious beef stew. If you are new to barbecuing and want something a little different this is a guaranteed success.

Assembling the ingredients

Place all the ingredients, apart form the sourdough bread, into a large ovenproof casserole dish. If you have a Weber BBQ with the Gourmet Barbecue System (GBS) you can use the cast iron Dutch oven.

Cooking

Pre-heat the grill to 160 - 165C and place the stew in the centre of the grill. We left the casserole dishes uncovered to allow the stew to absorb some of the smoke. Cook for around 2 - 2.5 hours until the meat is tender.

Serving

Serve with crusty artisan sourdough bread. If you want more vegetables just coat some in a little oil, place in a veg basket and put onto the grill about 30 - 40 minutes before the stew is due to come off.
